CORPUS CHRISTI — Senior Tyler Brown and sophomore Joel Rubio teamed up to claim the doubles championship at the Marco & Co. Islanders Open this past weekend at the Thomas J. Henry Tennis Center.

The duo won a total of three matches to earn the title in the season-opening tournament, topping Texas-Pan American's Ricardo Hopker and Sebastian Job by a score of 8-4 in the championship match.

Brown also led the Roadrunners in singles play by advancing to the semifinals before losing in straight sets to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi's Matt Westmoreland.

The Roadrunners recorded 10 wins at the three-day event, including five in doubles play.

UTSA will continue their fall campaign this weekend at the Baylor H-E-B Invitational in Waco. The three-day tournament gets underway on Friday.
